Many researchers in the life sciences are interested in data reuse but find it hard to navigate today’s confusing open data landscape. To support our community, we launched FASEB DataWorks!, a new initiative that brings biological and biomedical research communities together to advance human health through data sharing and reuse. 

Committee Charge

Oversee the implementation of the DataWorks! program to ensure biomedical community engagement around data sharing and reuse, alignment of the FASEB DataWorks! program with community needs, as well as community awareness of DataWorks! programs.

Committee Objectives

The Advisory Committee will meet monthly, via video/teleconference, to review DataWorks! activities and plans.

  1. Review and approve goals and metrics for each program area and alignment with FASEB mission
  2. Explore and advise on community partners
  3. Review community outreach plans
  4. Discuss pilot interim outcomes and provide input on next steps
  5. Comment on draft reports for FASEB Board review
